Newcastle fans lavish praise on Yedlin

Newcastle United collected a huge three points on Sunday afternoon when Matt Ritchie’s second-half goal gave them a 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

There were a number of impressive performers for the Magpies at the weekend, but one of those that sort of went under the radar was DeAndre Yedlin.

The 24-year-old had to deal with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial for long stages, and he performed extremely well at St James’ Park.

There remain question marks over Yedlin’s positioning and understanding of the game, but the defender has such incredible pace which allows him to escape a number of dangerous situations.

The United States international is a popular figure with the Newcastle fans, and many have taken to social media to hail the right-back for his performance against Man United.

Yedlin, who is believed to collect £20,000-a-week in wages at Newcastle, has performed well in his 23 Premier League appearances this term.
